Why Summer Classes Aren't a Bad Thing

9:00 AM

Hey there! It is the middle of June and that means that it is summer time! (It's been summer in Arizona for a couple of weeks already.) Summertime means sleeping in, days at the beach, and summer classes! Yes, summer classes. I know the last thing a college student is thinking about is taking summer classes and back in high school summer school was the literal worst thing ever. But summer classes in college aren't that bad.

Tips for Coping With a Bad Day

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to talk about something related to mental health. In this day and age, it seems like from the time we enter school, it's busy busy busy. There is rarely time for a break. Classes, extracurriculars, then college, then a job right out of college, then work until you retire. It can seem very overwhelming and sometimes you can have bad days. Everyone has them, it's completely normal.

May 2018 Blog Traffic Report

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to share my May 2018 blog traffic report. I was consistent in posting on the blog this month. I was very happy that I was able to continue posting.

Every month I share my traffic stats to show what my numbers are, how I use social media to drive traffic to my blog and to share that it's okay to have lower numbers. Many traffic reports show these big numbers and make newer bloggers feel disappointed about their numbers. Remember, it's not always about the numbers. You can have lower numbers but a tight-knit community. Stop comparing, and do you!

Why Bloggers Need to Organize Their Labels

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to talk about something that I think is important for new bloggers to know. When you first start blogging, you want every post to have its own category and you end up having too many categories that your readers can't distinguish what is important. I know this happens because I fell into that trap when I first started blogging! I would tag everything I could think of that was relevant to the post.

Why Bloggers Need to Watch the Shane Dawson/Grav3yardGirl Series

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to talk about something a little different. This is something that is going to go deep. You may or may not have heard that Shane Dawson started a new series on his YouTube channel and it involved Grav3yardGirl, Bunny Myer. He went to her because she believed her channel was dying, and he wanted to help her. But it is so much more than just a collab.

9:00 AM

Hey there! It's been a hot minute since I posted a college post, I'm talking like over six months. I guess when you're not in college, it's hard to think about posting college stuff. But, when I look back on some of my popular college posts, my Five Tips to Help You Excel in Online Classes post is one of my most popular ones. I figured that it was probably time to bring a part two to the blog. So, I'm here now with a part two of my popular post!

Her boxes are gorgeous and bullet journaling has become a big part of my life. I know it is already May, but her boxes ship at the end of the month, meaning April's shipped at the end of April.

April 2018 Blog Traffic Report

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to share my April 2018 blog traffic report. I got back into blogging in the middle of March and continued through most of April. I say most because I took a little break while I was doing new hire training at work. But, I was pretty consistent this month.

Every month I share my traffic stats to show what my numbers are, how I use social media to drive traffic to my blog and to share that it's okay to have lower numbers. Many traffic reports show these big numbers and make newer bloggers feel disappointed about their numbers. Remember, it's not always about the numbers. You can have lower numbers but a tight-knit community. Stop comparing, and do you!

Hey there! It's been one month since Matt and I tied the knot, and I finally have pictures to share with you! I cannot believe that it has already been a month since the wedding. Time is just moving so fast. Everyone says that the day goes by really fast, and it did! Once the ceremony began it seemed like everything flew by. I'm so glad to have so many pictures to remember that day.

March 2018 Blog Traffic Report

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to share my March 2018 blog traffic report. I know, I haven't done a traffic report in a while, but I wanted to share March's traffic report because I started blogging again in March. So, even though I only blogged through a quarter of March, my March numbers kind of surprised me, so I wanted to share them with you.

Every month I share my traffic stats to show what my numbers are, how I use social media to drive traffic to my blog and to share that it's okay to have lower numbers. Many traffic reports show these big numbers and make newer bloggers feel disappointed about their numbers. Remember, it's not always about the numbers. You can have lower numbers but a tight-knit community. Stop comparing, and do you!

Hey there! I'm starting a Bullet Journal Supplies series on my blog. I know that you don't need anything too fancy to use a bullet journal, and I don't think my supplies are that fancy. I wanted to share my supplies because I think they are awesome and that should be shared and enjoyed by many! So, for the first installment of this series, I'm going to be talking about Simply Gilded, an online boutique washi tape shop.

Our Honeymoon: Sandals La Toc, St. Lucia

9:00 AM

Hey there! We're finally getting back into our normal routine after our two week vacation off of work. With that being said, I want to share the experience we had in St. Lucia for our honeymoon, including a lot of pictures! We had a blast in St. Lucia, especially since it was our first international trip EVER! I took a good amount of pictures, a lot from our last night which was a street party. Part of me wishes that I took more pictures, but the other part is glad that I spent so much time in the moment with Matt.

My Bullet Journal Supplies

Hey there! Today I wanted to share with you my favorite bullet journal supplies. I found out about bullet jouraling at the end of 2016 and have been loving it ever since. I love my bullet journal and I definitely think that anyone who hasn't really found the planner that works for them should try using a bullet journal. That is why I tried, I couldn't find a planner system that really worked for me. I wanted to create something for myself. With that being said, here is the list of my bullet journal supplies.
